On Tuesday, rising R&B star Miguel dropped his new album Kaleidoscope Dream to critical acclaim. On Wednesday, he introduced us to his hot girlfriend Nazanin Mandi with his “Do You…” Video. And yesterday he shared a second video, this one for “The Thrill,” a song so giddy as to be almost woozy. Miguel’s ride is only just getting started.
The quick-clipped, black-and-white visual finds Miguel reaping the benefits of Miguel’s many years of patient work — flashing lights and glasses always full, hotel suites and all the pretty ladies he needs to fill them, and etc. And it may be because all the footage was shot at Naz’s last birthday, or it may just be that thrill, but the surest sign of all that Miguel is living the life these days is that big, cheesy grin he’s beaming all the while. It’s that thrill you can feel, you know?
